Recently MaxIm hangs occasionally while trying to download an image from my camera (STL-11000M). This causes ACP to hang as well and does not respond to any commands such as the abort button or weather unsafe event. Therefore, the observatory was not shutdown and remains active into the next day. This is extremely dangerous and causes all sorts of problems. For example, my mount keeps tracking all the time and my scope is crash onto the pier. Fortunately the dome was closed by the cloudwatcher.

Is there anyway to prevent MaxIm problem from hanging ACP? Is it possible to implement some sort of timeout so that such things will not happen?

Many thanks in advance for any ideas!
